Can school design help us to realise a new vision for education that equips young people for life in a fast-changing world? This is the big question at the heart of Planning Learning Spaces, a new guide for anyone involved in the planning and design of learning environments. Murray Hudson has brought together educationalists and innovative school architects to pool their collective expertise and inspire the design of more intelligent learning spaces. He will prompt the audience to question common assumptions about how schools should look and how children should be educated: Why, they ask, have so many schools changed relatively little in more than a century? What form should a school library take in the internet age? Do classrooms really have to be square? Muray also tackles vital elements of learning space design such as the right lighting, heating and acoustics, and explores the key role of furniture, fixtures and fittings.
